Culver City is in the process of setting up an online registration system which should be completed by the end of September 2019.
- Culver City Registration Certificate. Culver City will issue each landlord a Rent Registration Certificate for each Culver City unit registered with the City. The Certificate must be served on the tenant or posted in a conspicuous place at the rental property.
- Rent Control Notice MUST be Posted on each Culver City Rental Property. All Culver City landlords who own a property that is required to be registered with Culver City must post the Culver City Interim Rent Control Ordinance Notice in a conspicuous location in the common area, or at the entry or entries to the apartment building or rental units to provide every tenant a reasonable opportunity to view the notice.
